Bourne Legacy, If Any Of Your Shaky Cam Shenanigans Obscure My View Of Rachel Weisz, There Will Be Hell To Pay

Though new director Tony Gilroy will probably have a steadier hand than his Bourne predecessor Paul Greengrass, I still say if the sh*t gets too shaky and I miss any of Rachel Weisz's performance, someone's gonna get got. Gilroy promises: "Rachel has got to convince us she's an accomplished scientist, be able to convey a shattered personal life, bring a mantle of dead ends in her life to the screen. And in the end she has to kick some f*cking ass." You can read a bit more about Rachel's role (she's no Dr. Christmas Jones) and, while you're there, ogle the luscious photos. Side boob! (VF)

Speaking of heaving bosoms, the military is designing new armor for their female soldiers that can better accomodate certain, ah, aspects of their anatomy. Their inspiration? Xena. I sh*t you not. I hope every female soldier gets a standard issue chakram as well. (The Mary Sue)

The Nerds at MIT want to rain on your extraordinarily geeky parade and claim the Higgs Boson may be an imposter. (The Bunsen Burner)

Here's a new clip from The Dark Knight Rises. I could listen to Gary Oldman gravel at Joseph Gordon-Levitt all day. (Bleeding Cool)

Speaking of Nolan's new film, Vulture reminds us that this isn't the first time Tom Hardy's character, Bane, has graced the big screen. You're forgiven if you missed him somewhere between Schwarzenegger's ice puns and Uma's drag queen impression. (Vulture)

Bad news Direct TV subscribers, it looks like you won't have Jon Stewart to guide you through this election season. Dustin breaks down all the shows you'll no longer get because of their dispute with Viacom. (WG)

As many of you mentioned when I posted a piece called "Cumberb*tches Assemble," Benedict Cumberbatch hates that word for his female fans. He suggests Cumberbabes as a viable alternative. (Celebitchy)

I'd watch this movie. I'd drop everything I'm doing and watch it right this second. (Down With Film)

Here's a fun game to break up your afternoon monotony, hold your hand up over the bottom half of your monitor and see if you can guess the band names associated with these nifty pictogram rock posters as you scroll down. (Unreality)

Or, if it's that kind of day, then all you "Breaking Bad" fans can go Fring yourselves. (AMC)

Screen legend Peter O'Toole announced his retirement from acting. Though he'll be lovingly remembered for Laurence Of Arabia The Lion In Winter and How To Steal A Million, MovieLine prefers to remember him for other, more alcoholic reasons. (MovieLine)

Let's use Peter O'Toole's delightful staggers as an inspiration for this Zombie Theme Park. No, I'm not kidding, they're building one in Detroit. (Geekologie)

And let's finish out the day with this fantastic preview for the upcoming web series Harry Potter And The Ten Years Later. Oh yes, Ron's let himself go, but you can see our very own, very talented Shiny Kate in a scandalous corset and stockings combo. Delightful!

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not


  • TheOriginalMRod

    Damnit, Rachel Weisz is really pretty.
    Girl crush.

  • Johnnyseattle

    Is it just me, or does the guy playing Harry in that parody look a whole lot more like Neville?

  • Anne At Large

    Yup. That was my very first thought. Except have you seen Neville lately? Boy is aging into our next Clive Owen.

  • Barry

    Yeah, let's totally do a Peter Parker vs. The World, and let's cast hmmmmmm...let's say Andrew Garfield as Peter. That would be as awesome as casting Michael Cera for Scott Pilgrim. Right?

  • Sad about Peter O Toole. One of my favorite roles of his was "My Favorite Year". Decent enough movie but its all about O Toole.
    In a few years all our military hardware should be based off of fantasy works. It would help even out the jock and nerd divisions in schools.

  • Keep your Magic Mike dudes. I'll take Cumberbatch and his library talk every time.

    How did I fail to put Rachel Weisz in my Pajiba 10?! HOW?!

  • Forbiddendonut

    Sadly, they are likely not going to build the Zombie Theme Park here in Detroit. Someone wants to do it, but it's not going to happen. It's too bad. As a city that's lost over 50% of its population over the last 60 years, there is plenty of abandonded space and the idea of a Zombie Theme Park is (very sadly) waaaaay more realistic than any of their renaissance pipe dreams.

  • "Detroit, Where the Weak are Killed and Eaten."

  • Maguita NYC

    Well that's sad. I was about to snark on the appropriateness of the Zombie Theme Park in your city... But I find myself hanging my head in shame.
    Detroit could have greatly profited from such a theme park.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Female armor - well that's just crazy talk.

    I'm surprised the Cookie Monster "Share With Me Maybe" video isn't on here. It's making me smile.

    That head tilt at the end...too cute.

  • ElmoTee

    Did I miss the discussion regarding Ms. Weisz leaving Aronofsky for Daniel Craig, or are we all cool with it because Rachel and Daniel are both so damn fine? Just wondering...

  • Sirilicious

    Back when the leaving happened we all decided it was none of our business who Ms. Weisz decides to love.

    If you are into this sort of thing, i could give you the details on my break up with Bob three years ago, so you can decide if you are cool with it.

  • ElmoTee

    Thanks - I actually DID miss the discussion, and so appreciate the update. I'm sure if you are cool with your break up with Bob, I am as well.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    since it happened months ago, yes, you missed it.

  • Maguita NYC

    We seem to have forgiven easily Jude Law and fawning all over him for his new roles, no matter his cheating on both mistress and wife, with the nanny no less.

    Why not Rachel.

  • John G.

    What a good picture of Rachel Weisz. Stunning.

  • The Other Agent Johnson

    Well, it's sort of fish in a barrel, no? I mean, it's not like there are BAD pictures of her.

  • BierceAmbrose

    Well, I think we need some research to prove it's impossible to take a bad photo of Ms. Weisz.

    Lots of pictures. From all angles, different lighting, dressed up and down, etc. Post to these here interwebs so we can, you know, check that they're good. Could take years.

    It's for science!

  • John G.

    by higg's boson we must!

  • BierceAmbrose

    I'm totally stealing that line. (And kicking myself that I didn't think of it. -59 for Gryffindor.)
